Has all interest in Boktai died?

Post by Ghost »

Hello people,

This forum and the internet has been quite quiet about the Boktai games since Lunar Knights was released years ago and now I am wondering if the interest in the game franchise has truly died :(

I honestly hope not as I rather liked this little series and would love to see it being revived on the 3DS or another mobile platform.
Any other people here who would like to see Kojima's company revive this franchise?

Would like as well, but sale records show that maybe not a lot of people care. =/

Hello Artemio,

That is a shame.
Another franchise that has died a quiet death.

I have often brought up in the past that developers should focus more on creating new franchises than always rehashing old ones (think of popular Modern War shooters, or Final Fantasy games in Japan), but I do wish that little know series like this one that have a lot of spirit(spunk?) should get a few more sequel to show themselves to the audience before they are finally retired.

I just really liked the "Wild West meets Vampires and Gothic horror" atmosphere and wanted to learn more about the world and its history. (what was the old world like before it was hit by disaster, and what was the nature of the calamity?)
